Nautical Nails with Mavala

I've been itching to get into the bag of polishes which Mavala sent us recently and I got the chance this morning. I was asked by a friend to put together a nautical design and found the perfect colour scheme in our wonderful bag of goodies!

The four polishes I used are White*, Blue Mint*, Freesia* and Cobalt Blue*. They're all lovely, with great formulas and two-coaters. The brushes on some polishes were a touch frustrating as their shape was a bit off, making it tough to get a neat edge, but that could just be the artist blaming her tools!

Nautical is a style I actually haven't tried before, which is strange as it's a popular one in the nail world. I've just never found the right way to do it. I wanted to find a softer way to create the style and think I found it in this colour scheme. Using pastels, soft blues and coral instead of red really appeals to me. My anchor is a bit wonky but I'm pleased with how these came out!
